CHOOSING AN EVENT PHOTOGRAPHER IN PUERTO VALLARTA

By

Many of our guests stay in our luxury vacation rentals in the Puerto Vallarta Romantic Zone to celebrate a wedding, anniversary or other special event.  And while we can promise that your stay at Pinnacle Resorts will be memorable, you may want to consider hiring a photographer for your event or wedding in Puerto Vallarta. Having hosted many public and charity events, our Pinnacle Resorts team has some suggestions for choosing a photographer in Puerto Vallarta for your special occasion. 

Request a full portfolio – don’t be taken in by just a handful of photographs from a website. A professional, experienced photographer should have an extensive portfolio showing many different types and styles of work. 

Talk budget – have a clear idea of what you are willing to spend on photography in Puerto Vallarta and remember, that price can often reflect quality.  

What’s your style – talk to your photographer about how you want your Puerto Vallarta wedding or event captured, be it traditional posed portraits or more spontaneous, casual images. 

Personality – During your event, the photographer will interact with your guests and it is important that he or she is professional, serious and focused on capturing and creating amazing images. 

Talk to our Pinnacle Resorts concierge staff for suggestions about photographers and other ways that we can make your special event or wedding in Puerto Vallarta even more memorable.

Trio: serving Mediterranean cuisine in a cozy dining room with hand-painted murals or up on the rooftop terrace, Trio is a long-time favorite for special celebrations, with a wonderful wine list to accompany the excellent service and beautifully presented menu.

La Cappella: Italian fare served in one of the most beautiful rooms in Puerto Vallarta, with a panoramic view of the steeple crown of the Our Lady of Guadalupe Church and across the Pacific Ocean. To make a sunset dinner even more romantic, enjoy live strolling violists while you dine.

THE ALTARS OF DÍA DE MUERTOS

By

If you will be staying in our luxury vacation rentals in the Puerto Vallarta Romantic Zone during the last weekend in October, you will be in the perfect location to participate in one of the most special traditions in Mexico: Día de Muertos.

Not to be confused with Halloween, Día de Muertos is celebrated on November 1st and 2nd and is a combination of ancient Mesoamerican and Spanish traditions of celebrating the memory of the dead. But Día de Muertos is far from a somber time, in fact, it is a time to celebrate the lives of loved ones who have departed with music, dance, food and drink.

Mexicans will create altars dedicated to their loved ones and decorate them with offerings to ease their time in the hereafter, with gifts based on the four elements: water, wind, earth and fire. Water… and sometimes Tequila or other favorite drink is left so the spirits won’t be thirsty. Colorful paper banners represent the wind and candles represent fire, helping the spirits to find their way. And earth is represented with food, often the delicious pan de muerto, a sweet bread decorated with sugared fruit. Altars are usually decorated with marigold and depictions of butterflies to help lead the spirits and sugar skulls and toys are often found on the altars of children who have passed too soon.

If you are in Puerto Vallarta during Día de Muertos, visit the Plaza Las Armas beside our famous Malecón, to see some of these beautiful altars and experience this wonderful tradition.

THE HUICHOL ARTISANS

By

The Huichol indigenous people have been living in our region for hundreds of years and artisanal handicraft is deeply ingrained in their rich culture. Intricate yarn and bead techniques are centuries old and have been passed down as a way of sharing the legend and beliefs of the Huichol community.

Art is used as a means of prayer and to interact with the spirit world, creating symbolic representations of the figures that are central to their belief system. Some of the symbols you will frequently see in the art of the Huichol include trees, bears, armadillos, deer, coyote and peyote plants. Serpents are also often seen in Huichol art, but unlike in some other cultures, the serpent is revered by the Huichol as it protects the corn and peyote from pests.

There are numerous art galleries in Puerto Vallarta where you can explore Huichol Art. Pinnacle Resorts offers the only luxury accommodations in the Puerto Vallarta Romantic Zone, only steps away from several galleries, as well as restaurants, beaches, nightlife and live entertainment, making it the perfect luxury vacation rental in Puerto Vallarta.

Ask our concierge for art gallery recommendations and on ways to support the Huichol people of Puerto Vallarta.
